3rd Sunday of Advent: Entrance Antiphon
Philippians 4:4, 5
Rejoice in the Lord always; again I say, rejoice.
Indeed, the Lord is near.
(Philippians 4:4, 5)
O Lord, you have favored your land,
and brought back the captives of Jacob.
You forgave the guilt of your people.
Bring us back, O God, our savior!
Put an end to your grievance against us.
I will hear what the Lord God speaks;
he speaks of peace for his people and his faithful.
Glory be to the Father, and to the Son,
and to the Holy Spirit,
as it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be,
world without end. Amen.
